Network performance speed can determine how much time it takes to perform business operations…and time is money. Megalo Technologies in Branson, MO can help you improve network performance and speed through load balancing.
Load Balancing Basics
Load balancing is like directing and diverting traffic to prevent bottlenecks. Through devices and protocols, data packet loads are divided to be processed more evenly between servers, routers and switches to prevent one device from getting bogged down during high traffic periods.
Assessing Your Need for Load Balancing
Megalo Tech takes a proactive approach to managed IT services, so if we design and implement your network, we likely incorporate load balancing from the start. However, if your business network was developed without load balancing in mind, you may need it if you experience:
- Lags between the click to open and the actual opening/loading of an application
- Slow download times, particularly of websites and webpages that have been cached
- Garbled messages on your VoIP phone
- Error messages that indicate your server is busy
You do not have to wait until you observe signs of network traffic distribution problems. We prefer to proactively implement load balancing to prevent any delays or interruptions to your business operations.
Cost-Effective Load Balancing
Load balancing can be done with devices and applications on-site or off-site (i.e. cloud-based). The IT professionals at Megalo Tech can outline all your options and help you identify the most cost-effective and reliable load balancing solution.
